Volume is an online poetry space. We aim to publish the best new poetry that is submitted to us. Our focus is on poetry written in the English language, but our outlook is international. We publish works in translation and offer a space for collaborative work between artists and poets and poets-as-artists.

Our criteria for publication reflects our group of editors—who are primarily from the US and UK but have a broad range of interests and influences. We are neutral in our preference for the use of particular forms, styles, and expressions. Our editors are poets and artists who write from a range of stylistic genres; they are also translators of work from Europe and Latin America. We believe poetry is the most intimate form of expression in language and the strongest exemplar of the individual writer and their cultural, social, and political context.

Volume is best read on desktop.
